i trust you

maybe even bigger
than saying 'i love you'
is this -

i trust you.

i trust you because of who you are.
i trust you because of what we've been thru
and who you've shown yourself to be.

and sometimes i forget.
and i turn away
sometimes i even hide.
because i forget.

but today, i remember.
and i know that it's real.
i want to stop forgetting.
i want to live in the trust
and to love you
with everything that i have,
with all of who i am.
